PEOPLE all over the world joined together for the world’s greatest meal recently and Casterton was no exception.
The Rotary Club of Casterton hosted a barbecue on the banks of the Glenelg River as its contribution to this global event and hosted about 20 guests.
The event is a fundraiser for Rotary International’s main humanitarian project of Polio Plus and Casterton’s generosity will result in more than $1500 being contributed to this cause, according to the Rotary Club of Casterton’s international director Lynne Nadebaum.
The Rotary Polio campaign has been running for decades now, and aims to eradicate the disease of polio from every country in the world. Polio has been unknown in Australia since the 1960s and it is in rapid decline everywhere now, largely as a result of the Rotary efforts to immunise all children, according to Ms Nadebaum.
